El Biffo's rating of the film Petropolis: Aerial Perspectives on the Alberta Tar Sands

Good photography, not fabulous, but this film shows you what the Alberta Tar Sands looks like. Reporters and photographers are no longer allowed at the Tar Sands, so this is the film to see if you want to take a look at the eco-devastation that is underway. Jennifer Baichwal (MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES, WATERMARK) recommended this to me, since she was prevented from filming the Tar Sands.
